COVID-19 & Vitamin D Survey

Complete the survey here

A University of Manchester diabetes consultant has launched a global survey into prescribing patterns for vitamin D for COVID-19. 
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance in December found no evidence to support vitamin D as a COVID-19 treatment. 
However, Professor Edward Jude says: "The COVID-19 pandemic has caused devastation across the globe and the virus seems to be spreading unabated. It has been demonstrated that countries that are most affected are the ones that are in colder climates mainly and it is thought that the population of these countries who are vitamin D deficient may be one of the reasons why the virus is spreading so rampantly."  

The anonymous survey is designed to understand prescribing patterns but also doctors' personal use of vitamin D. You can access and complete the survey here

The role of telemedicine in wound management during COVID-19

EWMA Council Member, Luc Teot has written an article on the Telemedicine and Opportunities in Wound Care. An Overview of Solutions for Beginners. According to Teot, “Telemedicine should be considered as the best way to prevent contamination during COVID-19 outbreak and provide the relevant care to chronic wound patients”. 

In France, telemedicine was included in the public health code in October 2010. In this article, Luc Teot shares the French experience with implementing telemedicine in wound care and discusses some challenges and solutions in details.
